because that's how you get charged -- each portion is the same price and each is on a wooden stick. You just pick all you want, order a drink and sit down wherever you can. Someone will come around, count the sticks and give you the bill. Good stuff like smoked salmon, little sausages, croquettes, tempura vegetables, etc.

We ate here with our friend, she's from Barcelona. We thought this was a typically touristic and expensive restaurant, but it was not. The pincho's were €1,65 a piece and we ordered a bottle of cava for €18,- So the price is average. And the pincho's (little tapas on a stick) were really good. We arrived a little late, around...

Great little tapas cafe. After 8:30 PM on Saturday night seating is first come, first serve. Lots of locals. Fun vibe. Reasonably priced. Good selection of tapas.

All of the positive reviews are well-deserved. The tapas are varied and tasty, not to mention absurdly inexpensive. A great, fun evening -- provided you can get a seat!

I visited the restaurant after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and i was not disappointed! There is a great variety of tapas/pintxos - all for the same price (1,8 euros). Although at first they don't seem large, you can easily get full and eat without spending much money. We ate 8 tapas/pintxos each and were very full and with 2... More

It was our first time in Barcelona and therefor our first time at Bilbao-Berria. Great fresh ingredients, huge variety, modern interior, great white wine, right price. We've fallen in love with the tapas/pintxos way of eating for sure. Next time in Barcelona we will be back at Bilbao-Berria :-)

I have been to Bilbao-Berria every time I am in Barcelona, and I have never been disappointed with the food. Service depends on the person, some are great, others have an attitude problem, but I have always been able to "break the ice" and get better service from the wait staff. The place is small, few tables. and it is... More

Really impressed about the huge variety and the quality of the pintxos!Everything very very fresh and being prepared at the same time.The interior is quite modern but if you are lucky to have a seat outside definitely worth it while the view of the cathedral and the busy square during night is quite nice.Not so much enthusiastic about the quality...

I picked this place via Tripadvisor as it's around the corner from my hotel. Loved it. Am here on business, so went alone. Toured the counter, picked up what I wanted, ate, paid, no fuss, no muss - yummy. I am biased as I simply love the tapas way of eating, and with some new items to pick from, this... More
